Facebook Vs TV in Britain " Infographic

Apparently  a recent research conducted by  Expansys , in UK, Facebook is now a bigger national past-time in the UK than watching TV!

According to the blog which  ran a national study which found that UK users , spend an average of two and a half hours using the social networking site every day, compared to just two hours watching television programmes.

We spoke to 3,000 Brits and it was revealed that almost a quarter of Brits (24.46%) spend between three and four hours a day using Facebook.

More than a third (36%) of the nation now owns a smartphone, like an iPhone 4 or HTC Desire HD, and nearly all (91%) regularly use those handsets to access their Facebook accounts.

Almost one in three Brits (29.07%) spend between two and three hours a day using Facebook on their smartphones. On average, we check our Facebook accounts 7.52 times every day from our smartphones, but more than a third of us log on to our Facebook pages between 10 and 20 times a day using our phones.

And 15% of the nation admits it is so addicted to Facebook it can’t help but log on through its phones in excess of 20 times a day . The TV is now the poor relation by comparison.
